Excerpt: ... how past generations have suffered from ignorance and fanaticism, on what literary frauds the domination of the Church was established in the Middle Ages, and finally, what a consoling prospect the reign of reason and the enfranchisement of thought opens out before the human mind. I have sought to contribute to the teaching of such a necessary science by this little book. Those who have read it will not be defenceless against the antiquated heavy artillery of the apologists; and, on the other hand, when some self-sufficient rationalist aspires to instruct them in the name of Voltaire, they will be able to answer that nineteenth-century science has revealed truths to them touching the essence of religions and their history, of which Voltaire was ignorant.
